£30395 to £39609 per annum (pro-rata if applicable) depending on skills and experience. Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance.

The University of Nottingham are looking to appoint a Data and Evaluation Manager to join their Widening Participation team. In this newly created role, you will use your data management and analysis skills to ensure we are supporting students from all backgrounds to access higher education. 

As the successful candidate, you will help enhance our targeting and data management for outreach and support activities including making a significant contribution to the analysis of student and programme data to shape our widening participation strategy. As our Data and Evaluation manager, you will provide university-wide specialist advice and support to our team in evaluating, evidencing and articulating the impact of our activities. You will act as the lead for data protection and GDPR compliance within Widening Participation, as such; you will need to have a working knowledge of current legislation, and be proactive in keeping abreast of relevant updates and changes, making recommendations to improve our systems and processes accordingly. 

Working within our Widening Participation team, you will be a data specialist who is able to design, support and deliver high quality fit for purpose evaluation work. You will have a background in statistical analysis and data management, alongside experience of reporting and data quality assurance. As someone with an eye for strategic development, you will find this an excellent opportunity to utilise your abilities in order to help our team raise aspirations for students from all backgrounds. You will not need to have experience working in higher education, and an understanding of widening participation agenda is desirable, but not essential. 

In the Widening Participation team, we work with groups that are under-represented in higher education in order to raise aspirations and remove pre-conceived barriers to continuous learning. Our team deliver sessions to primary and secondary aged children across the East Midlands to provide insight into University life, and show that anyone has the ability to continue study after school. 

At the University of Nottingham, we aim to give you all the support you need to nurture your talent, develop and reach your professional and personal career goals. We are committed to providing competitive employment packages whilst supporting the well-being of our staff to help them reach their full potential. As a University employee, you will have access to a range of benefits and rewards, including leading fitness and health facilities, staff discounts and travel schemes, along with a generous holiday allowance and a highly attractive pension scheme.

This is a full time, permanent position. Job share arrangements may be considered for the right candidate. 

We envisage that interviews will be held on Friday 1st March 2019.
